Boston and its surrounding suburbs are quite dog-friendly, so scoring Boston Magazine's pick for the Best of Boston is no small feat! The following establishments have been chosen as 2018's top boarding, grooming, and dog walking services.
Best Dog Boarding:
Dogwood Cottage, Melrose
This premier "pawtique hotel" was designed to look like a quaint Nantucket cottage. The lucky dogs that patronize Dogwood Cottage are treated to luxuries such as indoor and outdoor play space - broken up to accommodate large and small dogs, kennel-free boarding with pup's choice of room and bed, directed play sessions with staff, and a variety of pampering grooming services.
Human pawrents get the convenience of one-stop-shopping for their dogs' daycare, overnight boarding, walking and grooming needs. The Dogwood Cottage staff even offer transportation services for busy pet parents with pickup spots in Beacon Hill and the Back Bay!
